The goal at Potter Guitars is to design instruments that have lasting sustain, a sensitivity to a light touch, a rich, focused bass, bell-like trebles and that will last for generations.
Built one at a time, the uniquely, small shop specializes in fingerstyle steel string guitars, repairs, and custom luthiery, with an annual production of less than 10 guitars.
Each guitar is treated individually, and built to be as responsive as possible. Careful attention is paid to the selection of wood for soundboards, hand splitting of brace wood, and final tuning of the top and back.
Potter Guitars is located in Willits, CA approximately 2.5 hours north of San Francisco in Mendocino County.
